At the head of this Montreal constituency since 2019, Mr. Guilbeault managed to regain his seat with just over 38% of the vote at around 1:45 a.m., after a fight with the New Democrat candidate Nimâ Machouf (31.8% ).
This was also Ms. Machouf’s second candidacy in Laurier-Sainte-Marie. In 2019, Mr. Guilbeault won nearly 65% of the votes.
In the middle of the night from Monday to Tuesday, the deputy leader of the New Democratic Party (NDP), Alexandre Boulerice, was therefore the only candidate of the party who had managed to have a confirmed seat in Quebec.
But the results were still pending in the riding of Berthier-Maskinongé where Ruth Ellen Brosseau had relaunched in the federal race against the outgoing Bloc Québécois Yves Perron.
